„I, like every other stupid American, assumed the kangaroos would meet us at the airport and they would want to hug us as much as we wanted to hug them. … [In Sydney's zoo] I did find out about the koalas and how eucalyptus makes them high and why they sleep all day. They're little druggies.“

Then I realized I would sleep most of the day, and my excitement disappeared.“

1990s, The Rum Diary (1998)
Contesto: By the time we got to the street, I could see the first rays of the sun, a cool pink glow in the eastern sky.

I looked out at the ships and the sea beyond them, and I felt crazy to be free with a whole day ahead of me.
Then I realized I would sleep most of the day, and my excitement disappeared.
